1 Answer

How do I change the type of file my scanner saves a document in?

Whenever I scan a document on my computer it saves it as a JPEG. Is there any way to make my computer scan a document as a word document? It makes it difficult to send the scanned image to others.

No .Type reconiznition software is very complicated and expensive. All a scanner does is divide the sceen into millions of dots and copies those dots in Picture(JPEG) format. It's software know nothing except to copy what is there.

When scanning on this machine, each page comes out as a seperate picture. I need to know how to make it scan as 1 document with multiple pages.


Your scanner is probably now saving the document as a tiff or jpeg which can only be single pages. You need to adjust your software so that your scans are saved as a PDF. As you provide no details on your system, I cannot tell you how, just check the settings, file type will be there somewhere. It might even give you the option for file type after the scan before it is saved.

How do i scan multiple pages and sav it to my documents. It seems like i am only able to scan and save one page at a time


Hi

If you have a Top feeder on the scanner, you can scan mutiple pages. Change the setting of the scanned file to pdf file (not JPEG) by going to the scanner icon and change the type of file you want to scan. Scan it as PDF FILE and then it will scan multiple pages. Regards

Scanned a word document, saved as jpeg file


By default all scanned documents are images (jpeg), OCR software converts the image to text for use with Word. I do not believe the scanner can tell what format to use without your input. More information is available here at HP's Online Support.

Saving a document as a pdf


JPEG gives small size outputs as compare uncompressed TIFF. This is probabbly the best for color. Try reducing the resolution to 150-300 dpi.

Setting the format of the picture i scan


Ok I am not sure why ya scanner won't save in JPEG .. however converting the files to JPEG is relitively "Simple". After saving the Scanned picture.. Open it up in say MS Paint, Painshop etc, then simply choose "Save As.." from the File Menu, and save it as a NEW image file this time with a JPEG extension. IE: origional... picture.png or picture.bmp ... save as ...picture.jpg .. ya should be good to go. :)
